Men are commonly described as difficult to shop for. Perhaps each gender finds the other the hardest to buy for! Whatever the truth is, it can seem that when shopping for women we are surrounded by trinkets and goodies that they would love. Affordable gifts for men often don’t seem to be nearly as prominent. Especially if we don’t have the budget for sports season tickets or the latest power tool. But an important way to improve our shopping skills for men is by shaking off some of the stereotypes. Men have often reported that they too like to receive flowers or sweet treats. Cooking utensils are not out of the question if the man in question has some interest in the kitchen. Items to pamper him are also often welcome! But if you’re still nervous about shopping for a man in your life then help is at hand. Browse the affordable selection below for some inspiration for a fun and thoughtful gift.
A great shopping solution can be a gift card from a favourite store or restaurant. Coffee shops also often offer gift cards, so if the man you’re buying for loves to stop in for a latte or tea it can be a great gift! It can even be something that you enjoy together such as a meal out or coffee in town. The great thing about a gift card is that you can set the budget for how much you want to spend. Even small amounts can often go a long way or be used towards a larger treat. Whether the man you’re buying for is into food, drink, fashion, or another hobby there will almost always be a gift card to suit him.

Facial soaps, masks, and cleansers can all be a pampering addition to a man’s routine. But have you also considering grooming gadgets? A Philips shaver or other reputable brand can be a great way to achieve a sleek and professional look at home. Many men can feel self-conscious about adding “beauty” steps to their routine but a gadget can keep the masculine edge!
An often overlooked gift item can be delicious food or drink. Many of us see treats out and about that we would like but that we cannot really justify without a special occasion. It can be something as extravagant as an excellent whiskey or wine, or something as simple and delicious as good quality tea and biscuits. There are few things more comforting than sitting with loved ones and enjoying gifts and snacks. If the person you’re buying for is not an alcohol drinker or is trying to cut down, a special cordial can still be celebratory. So if you’re shopping for a special occasion or gift, don’t overlook your local market or deli for inspiration.
Many people have a hobby or interest such as cooking, hiking, sport or film. A thoughtful gift is often one that helps us to relax and indulge ourselves. A magazine subscription to a publication on his favourite interest can become a great thing to look forward to. It is the gift that keeps on giving as it arrives every week or month!
